Bilawal dares PM Imran to dissolve assemblies, hold fresh polls

F.P. Report

KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Tuesday challenged Prime Minister Imran Khan that if he was not a coward he should dissolve the assemblies in order to pave the way for fresh elections. 

Addressing the participants of a long march at Moro in Sindh, he said, ‘Cheen raha hai Kaptan; Roti kaprra aur makan’. “This is not tabdeeli (change) but destruction,” he opined.  

PPP chairman claimed that the party’s march towards Islamabad had made what he called the ‘selected’ prime minister panicky, forcing him to announce cuts in petrol and electricity prices last night (Monday, February 28, 2022). “But he cannot befool the masses through such tactics,” he said.

Bilawal called PM Imran ‘chief of liars’. “You are a ‘liar’ while former president Asif Ali Zardari is a truthful person,” he claimed.

He said that the opposition would kick out the prime minister, who, as per his claim, sneaked into power corridors through unconstitutional means, by using constitutional means.  

PPP chairman was of the opinion that the ‘selected’ did not have the patience to listen to criticism of his policies. “Have anybody such a prime minister who weeps in front of a camera?” he questioned.

He said it was time to take PM Imran to task.

Earlier, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari-led Long or Awami March, which is on its way to Islamabad from Karachi, is now into its third day and heading for Khairpur.

The party workers reached Moro last night (Monday) after passing through different Sindh cities such as Thatta, Sajawal, Badin, Hyderabad and Nawabshah.

After Moro, the marchers will reach Sukkur after passing through Naushero Feroze, Kandyaro, Ranipur, Gambat and Khairpur. 

Meanwhile, a stage had been set at Khairpur’s Maryam Toob Chowk for the address by the PPP chairman while the party workers are already pouring in in large numbers.

PPP MNA Dr. Syeda Nafeesa Shah, who is at the venue to inspect the arrangements being made for the address, has said that jiyalas from all eight tehsils of the district will participate in the march.

Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) workers, led by Bilawal, had set out on a ‘long march’ or ‘Awami March’ from Karachi to Islamabad on Sunday (Feb 27), sending clear signals to the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) that it was time for a ‘war’.

Addressing participants of the march at the Quaid’s mausoleum prior to the start of their onward journey  towards Islamabad,  Bilawal said it was time to send the ‘selected’ Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) government home.

He accused Prime Minister Imran Khan and his team of not only stealing the general elections held in 2018 from the PPP and other opposition parties but also looting the people. “This man (Imran Khan) has made a mockery of ‘democracy’ and destroyed the country’s economy,” Bilawal said, and added, “We will protect the rights of each and every Pakistani. After reaching Islamabad, we will attack the government.”
